Made these tonight, always a great way to grill a burger.
I make these all the time because they really are easy and a great way to have a cheeseburger without losing half the cheese to the grill. And the sweet potato cajun fries are the perfect sweet, spicy combo. Grill some peaches, pears or plums and dinner is done. Enjoy.
On the board tonight:
- Jalapeno-Cheddar Stuffed Burgers
- Kaiser Rolls
- Cajun Sweet Potato Fries
- Grilled Sweet Corn (pull husks back, clean off silk, wash, pull husks up & grill-yum!)

On the board:
- Pasta Jambalaya

- 12 oz penne pasta
- ½ tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 1 stalk celery, diced
- 1 cup sliced carrots
- 1 tsp crushed garlic
- 1 tsp to 1 tbsp Cajun or Creole seasoning
- 15 oz can black beans
- 14 oz can diced tomatoes
- 4 oz can chopped green chilies
- 4 oz smoked sausage, sliced (I like Andouille)
- 4 oz shredded Mexican 4-blend cheese

Someone told me about Everything Bagel Ice Cream and my only response was, “now I want bagels.” The ice cream, not so much.
